Some streets in downtown Everett were closed and others between Tulalip and Everett were slowed as a procession and memorial service were held to remember Tulalip Police Officer Charlie Joe Cortez, who was lost on duty at sea on November 17, 2020 had gone. A procession of law enforcement vehicles from tribal nations and law enforcement from across Washington state arrived from Tulalip to Everett, Washington around 11:00 a.m. The procession went south on Hwy 529 to Everett, along Marine View Drive, and then east on Hewitt Avenue to the Angel of the Winds Arena for the 1:00 p.m. service. Here are a few photos from MyEverettNews.com of the procession. Click on the photo to enlarge it.
